PLACEMAKING

Placemaking is (as stated by Project for Public Spaces) “a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Put simply, it involves looking at, listening to, and asking questions of the people who live, work and play in a particular space, to discover their needs and aspirations.”

I undertook my first Placemaking project in 2012, with the creation of a public art piece in Fairfield, Iowa.

I launched my second project in 2014, by spearheading the revival of Gulport, Florida’s Community Garden.

    ah, I love this scene & can’t wait to see it come alive with all the materials – colors, people. I love seeing your works Karla. And love seeing this transform the town – more beauty, more cosiness.
